Many conservatives receive their news from this website; it is their  #1 source for information. In 2009, John L. Perry wrote a column advocating treason against the United States, suggesting that the military take out the president.  Seriously.  How many wingnuts copied and pasted this insane column? 

Newsmax has since taken it down.  Perhaps because even their cement heads realized that what was contained in this outrageous article is treason against the United States.  It is one thing to have policy disagreements with the POTUS, and quite another thing to suggest his violent overthrow.  The moron who wrote this claimed our coup d'etat would not be a violent one.  Right.  Our duly elected president--the man who was legally voted into office by a healthy majority of Americans would just simply step aside as the treasonous military forces tried to take control of the government--like a banana republic uprising? 

It isn't enough for these traitors to deligitimize this president by claiming he is not a US citizen; it isn't enough for these lunatics to dehumanize this president with their racist emails; it isn't enough for these bottom-feeders to advocate violence with their "Second Amendment" rhetoric--no, now that none of their foolish threats have given them what they want, they now resort to suggesting that the military overthrow the US government.

And Newsmax actually published this traitorous swill.

From Talking Points Memo:

Full Text Of Newsmax Column Suggesting Military Coup Against Obama

Here is the full text of John L. Perry's column on Newsmax which suggests that a military coup to "resolve the Obama problem" is becoming more possible and is not 'unrealistic.' Perry also writes that a coup, while not 'ideal,' may be preferable to 'Obama's radical ideal' -- and would 'restore and defend the Constitution. Newsmax has since removed the column from its website."

I'm publishing the end of it.  You can read the entire piece by clicking on the link provided above.

"What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, "I'm not interested in victory") that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?

Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?

Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America's military leadership is lost in a fool's fog.

Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a "family intervention," with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

Military intervention is what Obama's exponentially accelerating agenda for "fundamental change" toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama's radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don't shrug and say, 'We can always worry about that later.'

In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass."

Astoundingly, this piece of treason was written only  9 months into Mr. Obama's presidency.  Clearly Mr.Perry is insane, and Newsmax more insane for having published it.  But we all understand what sort of lunatics populate the fringes of the GOP.

Near as I can tell, Perry
wrote that in the Fall of 2009. Imagine he is now in some beer hall planning his putsch....

I don't think these traitorous shitheads (pardon my language, but if I said what I actually thought of these people I'd be using language no blogger would tolerate in their comments) have much of an idea how the military actually operates.

Generals are perfectly capable of offering advice or criticism to the president if they don't like the decisions he's making, and an intelligent President like Obama will listen to what they say. But this country doesn't have military coups. By suggesting such a thing, Perry has insulted the US military.

I just don't understand why people like this are free to walk the streets.Seems to me he should be in Guantanamo with all the other so-called terrorists.

Shaw - This "right wing nut" has a link to NEWSMAX. Why? Because they occasionally preset information that is actually worth considering. Just as the nut case Krugman occasionally does I am reminded.

So, I guess the point is... Either, or both sides can actually have points worth considering.

If ones mind is open enough.

Just love the politics! ;)

Shaw Kenawe said...

The "nutcase Krugman?" You mean the Nobel Laureate, Krugman?


There is no equivalency between Newsmax and Krugman.

Shaw Kenawe said...

PS. RN, you may disagree with Krugman, but he has NEVER advocated treason as has Newsmax by publishing the luntic, Perry.

There. Is. No. Equivalency.

Libertarians and conservatives always try to make an equivalence when someone or some agency is called out on their lunacy.

The Left has not advocated treason, and especially NOT Dr. Krugman.

Rational Nation USA said...

Shaw - I agree with you with respect to the treason issue. My bad for not making the point clear.

I was merely saying that Newsmax from time to time has presented views worthy of consideration.

As has Krugman.

I did not mean to infer Krugman had advocated treason, and I do not believe I did.
